"Ms. DeVonne was the District liaison between the administration and labor unions representing the majority of our staff. I have had the pleasure of working with Ms. DeVonne on workplace investigations, reports and also an unemployment hearing. She demonstrated the highest regard for procedural correctness, and carefully considered the details, no matter how extensive, needed to observe not only federal and state regulations, but also district policies and union contract agreements to ensure District compliance."
